I installed the windscreen in my 07 convertable.
1) With the windows raised it does greatly reduce wind buffeting at highway speeds. Not as well as the screen I fabricated myself for my VW Cabrio; that one was plexiglass with a vinyl skirt below which I was able to attach to the roll bar. The solid material and greater height made a much tighter compartment. The solara mesh screen does make a significant improvement, however.
2) I haven't used this one in cool weather yet, but I expect it would make several degrees difference in temperature.
3) The top panel flips down without removing it. I haven't used this feature, since I find the visibility to be fine looking through the mesh.
4) It takes up very litle trunk space. The upright panel is not large and the horizonal piece is a fabric screen that you unhook from the back seat and wrap around the upright panel for storage.
One advantage over my Cabrio screen is that it gives my dog a comfortable bed on the back seat. He's a medium-size dog (a large sheltie), and I got a harness that attaches to the seatbelt and will prevent him from becoming a missile in a colision. He is quite happy and unbuffetted sitting on the back seat under the screen. He used to crawl down onto the floor behind my seat in the Cabrio, so I hated to put the top down when I had him along.
